Heat – Europe: “Hell is here” – 45 Degrees C in France, Spain and Portugal

Western Europe “boils” by an unprecedented wave of heat. Huge fire in Catalonia. Can not be put under control. Break the high temperature records one after another in France, Spain, Germany and Switzerland!

All international media talk about a heat wave with the thermometer in some countries reaching 45 degrees Celsius, which no one knows when it will fall back. Countries such as France, Spain and Portugal will literally “burn” by the high temperatures, while some record temperatures have already broken in Germany and the Czech Republic.

A Spanish meteorologist referring to the heat wave said:  “Hell is coming.” At the same time, outside the control, the fire occurred on Wednesday in Catalonia, which is plagued by the persistent heat wave along with the rest of Europe, despite the overnight efforts of the fire brigade, according to a local authorities announcement. 
The fire occurred yesterday afternoon near the village of Torre del Espanole and, to this morning, it had seized 40,000 acres of land with olives and vines, according to local Interior Minister Michel Bouch.

“The situation is so difficult that we can not talk about a firearm in a controlled or extinguishing phase, but we are in the phase of expansion,” he explained. 
A force of 350 firefighters and seven air force units are involved in fire-fighting operations characterized as “extreme hazards” and could destroy 200,000 hectares in this fertile area. 
Expansion of the fire is accelerated by the strong winds and high temperatures prevailing in the Evre valley, one of the regions of Spain where the highest temperatures are often recorded.

The fire is likely to have started from a pile of manure on a farm where, due to the high temperature, explosion and sparks have been caused, according to the Interior Minister. 
The local government announced that about thirty people were away from their homes.
